Some Apple Employees Think Company’s New TV Service Will Be Dull As Nails – TechDirt
Like many companies, Apple has been trying to disrupt the traditional television sector for years. But like countless companies before it, Apple has repeatedly run face-first into a cable and broadcast industry that's aggressively resistant to actual change. As a result, Apple's efforts to launch a TV service have been comically delayed for years as cable and broadcast companies (worried that what Apple did to the music industry would also happen to the TV sector) tightly restricted how their content could be used if the approach varies too far from accepted industry norms.
So despite Steve Jobs insisting that Apple had "cracked the code" on a next-gen TV set as early as 2011 -- and efforts to strike licensing deals that have been ongoing since at least 2012 -- nothing much has really come from Apple's promised revolution on the television front...

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson: Netflix Is ‘Walmart’ of SVOD, HBO Is ‘Tiffany’ – The Wrap
AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson brought out the big guns — or at least the big metaphors — Wednesday morning at Goldman Sachs’ Communacopia conference.
“I think of Netflix as kind of the Walmart of SVOD, HBO’s kind of the Tiffany,” Stephenson told those in attendance.
In terms of that whole “bigger and broader” HBO that WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey has spoken about multiple times — Stephenson totally gets it.
“You’d like to fill out the schedule…we’re not talking about Netflix-level of investments,” the head honcho of the premium TV channel’s publicly traded parent company said.
Both, Stephenson says, want content throughout the week and the year. They no longer want to see consumers cancel and renew their subscriptions around “Game of Thrones.”

Netflix CEO Proclaims The Death Of Net Neutrality Is No Big Deal – TechDirt
We've noted repeatedly that while Silicon Valley giants like Facebook and Google are portrayed as net neutrality supporters, that hasn't been true for many years now. Google stopped giving a damn about the idea back in 2010 or so when it started eyeing the broadband (Google Fiber) and wireless (Android, Project Fi) markets. Similarly, Facebook has never really been much of a genuine supporter, and has actively undermined the concept of net neutrality overseas in developing nations. Once they became powerful and wealthy enough, they stopped seriously worrying about the threat posed by broadband monopolies.
For a while there, Netflix jumped in to supplant Google as a major net neutrality supporter, frequently highlighting how usage caps can be used anti-competitively or how ISPs were abusing interconnection points and their broadband monopolies to drive up prices for competitors.
But as Netflix has grown more powerful, its advocacy for net neutrality has waned proportionally. The co ...

Alphabet says now is the time for two Google X projects to evolve into standalone businesses (GOOG, GOOGL) – Silicon Alley
Alphabet Inc., Google's parent company, announced on Wednesday that two research projects, Loon and Wing, are becoming independent businesses.
Loon, the balloon-flying internet-delivery project and Wing, which is developing a drone-delivery service, are now standalone businesses operating under the Alphabet umbrella.
This likely means little to Alphabet's bottom line for the foreseeable future, but the two projects emerged from Google's X facility, which is more focused on changing the world.
Loon and Wing, two research projects developed within Google's secretive X research facility, are becoming standalone businesses within Alphabet, Google's parent company announced Wednesday.
Loon is the project that releases massive balloons into the stratosphere carrying the gear needed to supply people in rural communities with an internet connection. Wing seeks to develop the means to deliver goods to consumers via drone aircraft.
Alphabet said the companies' financial...

Facebook is testing a new feature called "Keyword Snooze" that allows users to block posts with certain words from showing up in their News Feeds.
The option would make it easier for people to avoid spoilers for certain TV shows and movies.
